Need a fun, cute & quick idea for picnics this weekend? I thought these would inspire you. I made them a couple of years ago for the fourth. Just any old box recipe muffin or cupcake mix will do. Cover 2/3 of the top of the cupcake with white icing (again, store bought for convenience) and top with "sand" (aka brown sugar). Fill in the remaining top of the cupcake with blue icing in wavy patterns. Top with an umbrella (a little hard to find, so buy them when you see them and keep them on hand). And top with a "lifesaver" candy. Instant cute cupcake!
Now, ain't that just BEACHY!?
